The Dangerous Kind: A haunting novel

The Dangerous Kind by Deborah O'Connor is a gripping, thrilling and haunting tale of scandal, abuse and murder. Very much a book of its political climate, this novel addresses many issues in society and the way that the people at the top of the food chain behave. It is a bleak reminder that this world...
